Description

The utimes(2) man page has a couple problems:

- It fails to mention futimesns() and possibly others.

- It suggests that the PATH arg for futimesat() is optional, but in my use it appears to be required.

This issue is resolved. The futimesns etc. documentation was added to the man page in 5460 and the man page has been further cleaned up in 13111.
13111 also added a test suite that confirms that futimesat() works properly when path is set to NULL.
